New system lets you control robots with brain waves and hand gestures 20.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
MIT scientists have developed a system that allows humans to control robots using brainwaves and simple hand gestures, preventing machines from committing errors in real time. By monitoring brain activity, the system can detect in real time if a person notices an error as a robot does a task. Using an interface that measures muscle activity, the person can then make hand gestures to scroll through and select the correct option for the robot to execute. The team from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)'s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) in the US demonstrated the system on a task in which a robot moves a power drill to one of three possible targets on the body of a mock plane. They showed that the system works on users it has never interacted with before, meaning that organisations could deploy it in real-world settings without needing to train it on users. "This work combining EEG and EMG feedback enables natural human-robot interactions for a broader set of ...

Explosion at Hawaii volcano spews ash as lava flows into sea 11.6.2018 DNA: Popular News
A small explosion at the summit of Hawaii's erupting Kilauea Volcano on Sunday sent ash spewing into the air, creating a driving hazard for roads on parts of the Big Island, the US Geological Survey said. Lava fountains from a fissure in the volcano reached as high as 180 feet (55 meters) from Saturday night into Sunday, pushing flows of molten rock into the ocean, it said. "Seismic activity at the crater continues with gas explosions and ash eruptions under 10,000 feet (3,050 metres). While the eruption is never predictable, conditions appear stable for the moment," Richard Rapoza, a spokesman for Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, said in an email. The eruption, which entered its 39th day on Sunday, stands as the most destructive in the United States since at least the violent 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington state that reduced hundreds of square miles (km) to wasteland and killed nearly 60 people, according to geologist Scott Rowland, a volcanologist at the University of Hawaii at ...

‘MNREGA workers not getting wages on time’: Sachin Pilot 7.6.2018 DNA: Popular News
Raje government is ‘crushing’ MNREGA as labourers engaged under the scheme are not getting wages on time. PCC chief Sachin Pilot said this while accusing the state government of being passive to the hardships of commoners that they are facing to get basic amenities. Pilot, after extensively touring the tribal belt of Banswara recently, reached Churu, in Shekhawati region and held Mera Booth Mera Gaurav, a mass contact programme, in Sadulpur Assembly constituency. Jats have a stronghold in the Shekhawati region and it is said that any party can sweep the elections if the community votes for it. The caste is believed to be traditional voters of Congress, though in 2013 Assembly elections they voted for BJP riding on the Modi wave.  Congress wants its traditional voters back and is focusing on the region and therefore Pilot has started touring Churu and Jhunjhunu districts of the regions from Wednesday. Addressing a gathering in Saduplur, the PCC chief invoked the people present there to decimate the ...
